Old Love 04:11
we been in wars together hand to hand side by side sunken by the treasure on a rising tide the darkness of the truth gone and cast us in this light it’s the sunshine of the moon angling for a fight behind this whole facade we been dueling in the streets till death do us part old love...put down your guns best if we call it a draw old love...put down your guns best if we draw it a draw we been in wars together hand to hand side by side to pretend that I don’t need you I’d be swimmin in a lie so lets slowly back away no need to cause a scene we’ll disperse into the clouds put our money on some dreams we’ll disperse into the clouds put some money on our dreams old love, put down your guns best if we call it a draw old love, put down your guns best if we call it a draw we either will or we won’t ya do or ya don’t anyone with eyes could see we’re reaching the gold of our rings has gone cold on our fingers anyone alive would say we’re sleepin old love, put down your guns best if we call it a draw old love, put down your guns best if we call it a draw

sometimes i think about things before they happen float it around in my head for a while all of a sudden its grown too big to handle changed it’s clothes and grown a mind of its own too loud to listen too proud to put the paper to the pen clean up this place run the vacuum of my head too many time zones two thousand planes tack on the distance it only brings me back again these books are overdue there’s tenderness inside the depth of the lineup watch the characters come alive dip into the system feel the volume fill the space bending horizons fall into place all is forgiven times will clean us absolute, absolution all is forgiven time is a genius absolute, absolution shift these shapes make the landscape disappear tech tonic plates serving powers to your fears sometimes I hear that voice when words were never spoken proceed with caution before glass has ever broken quantize the groove while it’s dancing in your head controlled emotions find me drifting instead till we feel better without it go and knit some sweaters about it two stone statues trying hard not to laugh maybe there’s something in the movement or the stillness of the air put that good stuff on ice and keep that elephant over there let’s shift through modern times i hold a future pass non existent obstacles squarely in our path all is forgiven times will clean us absolute, absolution all is forgiven time is a genius absolute, absolution

Time Lapse 04:53
a man who’s lost on a number of dealings walkin blind through a crowd of feelings she looks okay from floor to ceiling there’s something in her heart her smiles concealing hustle in the steps bendin and cheatin a little boy that’s been caught stealing tears in her eyes somehow she’s beamin a little girl who keeps on dreaming time lapse, abandoned buildings speed it up, to remember the feelings time lapse, abandoned buildings I wish you something much more appealing like a cannonball, drawn to danger in the arms of the perfect stranger holding her tight it’s not in his nature until it’s gone from minor to major quiet noise calm and contagious break the bank makin them changes I wish you something much more appealing this time with a little more feeling... we’re lucky we live in a place where seasons never change we can recut our yesterdays to put each other in the final frames time lapse, abandoned buildings speed it up to remember the feelings time lapse abandoned buildings I wish you something more appealing we are lucky we live in a place where the seasons never change we can recut our yesterdays to put each other in the final frames

fuji film, tall and trim she paints the city’s pictures in mind over matter, forever and after another way to cheat the lens I will never be alone I’m just breaking to your shadow I will never be alone I’m just breaking to your shadow her colors runnin I’m walkin anyway I hear them comin I watch it expose the world falls away he stays, she stays following the sound of dominoes I will never be alone I’m just breaking to your shadow I will never be alone I’m just breaking to your shadow as high as the stakes may be I’ve given in to fantasy as high as the stakes may be I’ve given in to fantasy I will never be alone I’m just breaking to your shadow I will never be alone I’m just breaking to your shadow

You and me at the Crest of the sea Shangri la la Languid and pretty Pass the boa boa trees Walk with me Where i go pressed in the city Tell you in confident it’s plain to see Spin the wheels of fortune Set your conscious free Salt on your hips How will I go Kissed by the sun Count the freckles off your nose Sunbathing beachcomber and Guess that she found me She famous and nameless Wandering aimless Saturday, we’re more for the merry The dancing breeze Extra ordinary Down to the shore To peddle our wares Off in the stars We’ll be the only ones there Down to the shore To peddle our wares Off in the stars We’ll be the only ones there We’ll be the only ones there We’ll be the only ones there We’ll be the only ones there We’ll be the only ones there
